    I'm guessing that it's because of the large number of page numbers on the "jump to page" menu which your computer needs to load. I could be entirely wrong, though.

    It has nothing to do with the thread or the number of pages. Sometimes your server is very busy during peak traffic at certain times of the day. Or you may want to re-check your computer, I can say for one the okies will not be starting another thread. Nothing wrong with the current one, pitures also can slow your page load-up times.

    We'll look into it. Can you give examples of when it is happening and exactly what happens? Is it all the time on every page, or just sometimes?

    I've been looking at those pages and they are loading just fine for me. In order to troubleshoot it we need to duplicate the problem, and so far we haven't been able to.

    You do realize that the amount of posts on a single page can be increased so in cuts down the number of pages???

    ETA: On mine it only shows that the Okies has 757 pages!! But I have mine set to 75 posts per page!

    Of course, it might make sense to close that thread (not delete it, just close it) and start a new one. That one is VERY VERY long and might just be very difficult to keep it optimized.

    With the Okies thread, it pauses for a moment near the "jump to page" menu when loading. It's only for a moment, but it does happen every time.
